Good, stable, and reliable Operating System. The best we have on the Windows market. However, the modern reality demands more. Hopefully, Windows 7 is a valid answer to these demands.

Avoid Windows, and any other Microsoft product, at all costs. Unsafe, unreliable, and prone to failure.

I believe that  windows xp really taught people how to use computers. It taught us about handling viruses ,how to get the most from music and movies,and software compatability.I love it and hopes it stays around forever.

Most of program or software are designed for xp only. Due to its popularity and usability i have given a 4* for it.

What bit am I supposed to love, its total lack of security that lets anyone into the administrator account, the RPC shut-down routine that was flying around which caused it to shut down, the spammy net msg application, the active scripting? The way all its shared resources are usually enabled by default, without warning the end user. Hate it!

An excellent operating system if you like slow, buggy, unresponsive crap! Over priced and unfinished. If you must use Windows stick with Windows 2000 or NT 4.0 and whatever you do avoid Vista like the plauge! Just install Fedora Core 6 (version 7 out end of March 07) and see the difference it makes. It's free and in almost 6 months of using it I only experienced one crash and that was my fault for doing something I shouldn't have!!

Windows is the worst operating system devised. I've had all the different types of Windows at work. They all crash. They punish you if you want netscape, and always need new upgrades. Too many viruses. An OS is supposed to already be secure without you having to authorize practically everything you do. Even compressed, supposedly untouchable files can get viruses. Switch to Mac OS X or Red Hat Linux. Both extremely solid systems and way way way more user and worker friendly.

This is one of Microsoft's best operating system releases. A lot of new features emerged and it makes it a lot easier for novice users to keep things up to date and make sure security is in place, once you tell them what to look for, the security center pops up and tells them if there is a problem. Easy to work with, and is based on the old Windows NT system.

I am decidedly unimpressed by Windows XP. After about two years of being spoiled by Mac OSX, I've been welcomed back to the wonderful world of MS operating systems with the purchase of a new PC laptop.

Windows XP is as unstable as all the other Windows versions. Stuff locks up. It takes ages to boot up, and turn off. I have to force quit applications that are stuck, fairly often.

In using the XP and OSX side by side, I'd have to say that there is no comparison. Mac's OS is by far superior.

Sadly, it's just not possible to get by in my business without access to a PC - to me, it just highlights that MS's best days are behind them.

It's not perfect, but by superimposing the gaming and home/small office compatibility of 9x on the NT core, MS has finally managed to create a consumer, GUI-driven OS that doesn't leak memory like a broken roof or need to be restarted every 2 hours like the 9x core OSes did. Oh...And it's also the easiest OS to run that old DOS classic Betrayal at Krondor on: You can give yourself all the conventional memory you'll ever need in XP. :-) And I don't need to run processor slow-down software to run Wasteland properly like I did in the various bitter flavours of 9x. Stay the Hell away from Vista though: DRM and TCOA is worse than Hitler.

I have been a Microsoft OS user since the 'bad old days' of MS-DOS (sorry, command line purists), and I would say that as the years goes by, Microsoft gets it better and better. Granted that you have to really have a fast computer to run XP (yea, like try running XP on anything less than a 1 GHZ maching), so that you can hide the OS 'bloatware'. But most of the user community could care less about that - they just want a OS that simply 'works'. XP does that. It simply 'works'. You can tailor it and 'tweek it' to your hearts content. Or you can do 'nothing at all'. On both ends of the spectrum, the XP operating system offers rock-solid support, while providing seamless interfaces with so many devices it is almost too numerous to count. I would like to see UNIX, or LINUX make that claim (I know this is a 'stick in the eye' to the Unix and Linux purists - but 'so what'). Again, bottom line, XP simply works. I plug in my new hard drive - It recognizes it. I plug in my Digital Camera - I'm downloading files. I put in a CD-R, I'm burning a CD. I stick in my memory stick - I'm uploading and downloading as I need. I go out to the Internet - it provided pretty solid protection (unless I want to turn off the security). This is everything that you would expect in a Operating System. Allthough it is about time, I think Microsoft finally got it right with XP (and especially with XP Service Pack 2)

It would not be so bad if it did not have so many holes in it. Rumor has it that this new virus was caused by an article that Microsoft published regarding the hole in the security before they had a patch and now thousands of users and businesses are paying the price. Some thing has to be done about Microsofts cavalier handling of the worlds main PC enviroment.

MS went overboard with this one. Definitely a worthy successor to 98 SE with much more stability. Still, many annoying features and extras that are too dumbed down. The eye candy is the first thing I remove when installing. I prefer Win 2k.

I think that XP is the almost best operating system around. The best one I've ever used is Guardian, which is on a mainframe computer (Original name Tandems, then bought by Compaq, now merged with HP). Since its not PC based, I have to settle for XP. I've used Linux/Unix based systems, and I completely think they stink!

I'm still waiting for the real version of XP to come out. I know they have the stable, debugged version sitting somewhere in that Microsoft compound. I sometimes think they are waiting to come up with another new OS before releasing it. Whatever the case may be, I like XP's wizards the best.

Windows just plain old sucks. Sure its getting a little more stable, but its because of windows that people regard crashes as normal! the stuff is designed so that you can leave it running for weeks without a hitch. not a chance with windows. its slower, more vulnerable to viruses (not 1 successful virus has been written for OS X). I just want an os that is simple, but secure, malleable for cross platform cooperation and self modification, but easy to use and intuitive. basically i want a modern DOS type OS with customizable interface. I want to be in control of EVERYTHING about my comp.

Sure it's more stable if you were using 95, 98 or ME before but if you are using Windows 2000 it's just as stable, they both run on the same NT kernel. XP just adds more bloat and eye candy. If you're running 95(god help you) 98, ME(pos) then you should definitely upgrade to XP but if your using 2000 then there's really no need to.Another thing that bothers me, the default user interface is horrible, did Microsoft hire Fisher-Price to design the looks? Why am I giving it only one star? It is Windows 2000 with extra crap(mostly uneeded) added, not exactly innovative.

MS did a great Job to make this a very stable OS. I've never seen a crash caused by the Software. Problems are caused by the extensive need of Resources and the bad Securety Situation which is not at all the fault of the OS itself.

Yet another Mico$oft approximation of a real OS. Even worse than its predecessors. It's slow, unstable, awkward, and incredibly limited. I don't think the interface is anything other than cute. It certainly isn't easy to use for anything important. I have one Windows machine upon which I do nothing by run Quicken, and a Unix machine upon which I do everything else. I'm about to say goodbye to Bill Gates and Company forever and buy myself an Apple. OS X is a Unix variant and Apples and Mac OS has always been light years ahead of PCs and Wondoze.

Microsoft really needs to do some work on their operating systems. While XP looks nicer than previous versions of Windows, it seems to crash just as often. This program is not responding. It just never stops. In addition, Windows XP is filled with security holes and flaws which enable viruses to escape into the operating system.

Say what you will, Windows XP is still the best desktop out there. Yes, it has problems, but show me an operating system which does not. I manage a network of Windows 2000, Windows XP, Linux and FreeBSD. I run Windows XP on my desktop and laptop. No, Windows XP is not limited. It is however dumbed down a little so the average user won't shoot himself in the foot. However the extra features are accessible. There isn't anything that Windows 2000 can do that XP cannot. Basically, no crashed for over a year. I do not particularly like the new control panel, so I do switch back to classic control panel. I also do like icons on my desktop, so I re-enable my computer and related, which ends up looking a lot like Windows 2000. I do not think that the default theme is the most pleasing. The buttons and toolbars are too big and rounded. I can see how this would be a good theme for novice users, but I prefer thin lines and small buttons. I run at high resolution as well (1800x1600 usually) and prefer a flatter interface.
